Service
 
“Old boys’ club” decor (antique paintings, a gleaming bar, “funky-yet-charming” taxidermy) is part of the appeal of this “fantastic” , circa-1856 American near the White House, a “classic frequented by tourists and residents” alike; known for its “beautiful” Victorian rooms and “outstanding oyster selection” , it’s “always crowded” , but the “attentive waiters” and “great atmosphere” make this one a “grand favorite.”

One of the oldest restaurant in DC, and said to be visited by Teddy Roosevelt this restaurant is a DC classic. I bring friends, business meetings, and even groups of 10+. Everyone gets a dish they adore whether a burger, steak, fish, oysters, chicken, or a cocktail suggested by the staff. Tip: for dinner of a party more than 2 call and make a reservation. Also, the front area is a little loud if anyone in your group of hard of hearing so when you call ask to be seated in the atrium by the fountain. It’s a beautiful, quiet extension to the restaurant where it’s easier to talk. -V

Excellent breakfast! The building is old (like 1880's era) and has been well maintained with lots of character. The staff is friendly and courteous. On display is an thanksgiving menu from 1910. Perfect location to visit places in D.C. such as the memorials and Smithsonian museums. It's also about 2 blocks from that white house.

Amazing restaurant! Make sure to book a reservation with a large party but there were some stools open at the bar to order. I went there during happy hour and got half off oysters and shrimp cocktail. My main entree was delicious and the peanut butter pie was so good. A bit pricey but well worth it if you are visiting from out of town.
